2. Submit your work

As a journal author go to the the journal page of your choice and submit your manuscript online. Electronic submission substantially reduces the editorial processing and reviewing times and shortens overall publication times.

As a book author you can find guidelines for a smooth publication process and get in touch with an editor in your subject area.

3. Production

Our team of knowledgeable professionals will guide you from manuscript to publication. 

As a Springer author you can use Article or Book Tracking. It will guide you through the stages from the moment your work has been accepted until it is published online and in print.

4. Publication

Once the initial proof of your article has been corrected and finalized, the article is ready for Online First publication. Articles are searchable and citable by their DOI (Digital Object Identifier). You can subscribe for our Citiation Alert.
